Infectious is the fourth album of the third wave ska/funk/pop band Suburban Legends. It was released on July 29, 2007 at the House of Blues at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California and is made available for sale at the band's website. The album was revealed in early July via videos showing the recording process on the band's YouTube account. Later in the month, the album was officially announced and "All Around the World," "Win a Date," and "Infectious" debuted on the Suburban Legends MySpace page. The songs "Bed of Roses" and "You Told Me That" were previously released on the band's Japan-only release, Dance Like Nobody's Watching: Tokyo Nights. In transitioning back to its original ska sound in the months leading up to its 2012 album, Day Job, the band began performing a ska punk version of "So Fine."
